Yesterday afternoon, I popped along to a ‘Secret Arty Farty Garden Party’ (along with the Bridget from Thinking Of The Days)
The event was hosted by Janet and Pete from The Refectory Table – who run workshops and courses for creative businesses from their lovely home
The party showcased a selection of work by locally based artists, with pieces dotted artfully around the house and garden
I tried to be as restrained as possible when it came to spending, and was very happy with the Kay van-Bellen print I came away with (more on that soon)
This was all fuelled by a very healthy (oxymoron?) spread of delicious cakes, some with a fun arty theme – Damien Hirst cow cake anyone?
We even got to sample a lovely lemon drizzle baked by the Queen of Clandestine Cake Club herself, Lynn Hill – a baking celeb!
All in all, a lovely way to spend an afternoon – meeting new people, discovering new artists and sampling delicious baked goods
Here’s a few photos to give you a visual taste…
